New Year, New Me?
LoL Patch 13.1 | All Buffs and Nerfs
LoL Patch 13.1 is going to kick off the new year right. We're getting a mid-scope update, some champion and system updates and some epic new skins as well.
We are going to check out the first League of Legends patch of 2023. How will the jungle changes affect the season and what does Riot have planned for the new year, now that League of Legends is going into Season 13.
LoL System Buffs and Nerfs in LoL Patch 13.1
Item Buffs in LoL Patch 13.1
Riot is making some adjustments to a few items in the upcoming League of Legends Patch. These are just slight changes and we expect more to pop up in the coming weeks.
|Item||Changes in LoL Patch 13.1|
|Catalyst of Aeons|
|Rod of Ages|
Seraph's Embrace and Jak'Sho, The Protean Will Be Adjusted in LoL Patch 13.1
Jak'Sho is one of the new items introduced in the 2023 League of Legends Preseason. It's meant for tanks, but it seems that everyone and their mother are building this item since it's got a 70% pick rate as we head into the upcoming first League of Legends Patch 13.1.
Therefore, Riot is looking to neutralize the item on tank champions, while making it much weaker on fighters and others that have also loved building the item. Champions like Irelia have a 56% win rate with the item and that just seems infair, right?

Ahead of the 2023 season Riot also played around with some Seraph's Embrace changes. While those changes hadn't been all too succesful and they ended up getting pulled off the PBE server, it seems like Riot might have found what they wanted to do with it and are shipping the changes in the patch.
System Nerfs in LoL Patch 13.1
There is only one system getting nerfed in the upcoming Legue of Legends Patch and that is Legend Tenacity. The rune will receive a nerf, which has some players worried, but Riot hasn't revealed the exact details of the nerf just yet.
- Tenacity Legend
- 5% (+2.5% per Legend Stack) >>> 5% (+1.5% per Legend Stack)

Want to know more about the upcoming mid-scope updates? Check out what was leaked for Rell:
Jax Mid-Scope Update in LoL Patch 13.1
Jax is also going to be getting his long-awaited mid-scope update. Alright, it's not been that long since it was announced. Neeko mains have had to wait longer, but this mid-scope is much smaller than any of the other ones we've seen... if this is a mid-scope then we can count what Riot did to Zeri in the previous patch also a mid-scope update, right?
|Abilities||Changes in Jax Mid-Scope Update|
|Q - Leap Strike|
|E - Counter Strike|
|R - Grandmaster's Might|
Jax will also be getting some new visuals for his ultimate to let players know when the passive is ready. Oh, and thanks to the new passive we are also getting some updated VFX there as well. His icons have also been updated.
His original passive icon will be used for the new mini game that has been added to Jax. You can now go fishing with him in the river and gain one extra gold. Oh, and fish-champions will give Jax one additional gold as well when he kills them.
Champion Buffs and Nerfs in LoL Patch 13.1

While we are only getting one system nerf, in the upcoming patch, Riot is going to focus on multiple champions. K'Sante was one of the most stand-out champions at the 2022 Demacia Cup with an insanely high win rate and presence. While he is doing fine in solo queue, it seems that Riot is looking to nerf him with the start of the professional season soon, but he isn't the only champ getting nerfed:

R - World Ender

The buff list is a little shorter than the nerf list this time around. Here is a list of all champions getting buffed in the coming patch:
